The Providence Performing Arts Center is an easy trip!
Everybody loves the theater, particularly when Adventure Tours of Warren hosts the theater party. And, you'll really like Providence Performing Arts Center, originally built as the Leow's Movie Palace.
On opening day at this theater, October 6, 1928, over 14,000 people came to hear the $90,000 Robert Morton organ accompanying the film, "Excess Baggage". But most people really showed up to see the magnificent decor with its sparkling gilding, lavish fabrics, coffered ceilings, columns of imported marble, and huge crystal chandeliers.
The Providence Performing Arts Center is completely restored to its former glory and is a fitting setting for the splendid Broadway productions that grace its calendar. Recently we've seen Jersey Boys, Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story, Mary Poppins, White Christmas, Cabaret, Pippin, Memphis, Evita, Kinky Boots, Blue Man Group, Dirty Dancing, Bullets over Broadway, Wicked, Sister Act, War Horse, Cinderella, Wicked, Mamma Mia!, Book of Mormon, Lion King, Chicago, 42nd Street, King & I, The Bodyguard, On Your Feet!, Beautiful - The Carole King Musical, American in Paris, and Something Rotten . On our 2018-19 schedule are performances of Miss Saigon, Anastasia, Cats, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, Phantom of the Opera, and Jersey Boys. We hope you'll consider joining us for theater really soon. For best availability, remember to purchase your seats about 60 days prior to the performance
